I was recently at Makino Japanese Buffet to celebrate a 90th birthday party! Kudos to the hosts who picked a terrific place. The food was excellent, with a large selection of excellent sushi and sashimi, and many other choices of food

This place is great! The food is always fresh with a large selection including sushi. The price is very good but increases a bit for the dinner menu. The dinner menu is larger with a bit of a different menu though. I hope you enjoy it as much as my girlfriend and I do, we've been going there for over a year now.

I love this place, but maybe I've been lucky. More on that later.

Talk about selection of sushi and sashimi! 50 or so varities, plus a load of salads and appetizers. Add a 2 dozen hot dishes plus a hibachi grill where you can order anything your heart desires, and you have a GREAT place to eat for right around $17. (The pricing in these buffets varies according to day of week, with weekends being more expensive by a dollar or two than a weekday.)

I've never had a bad meal here, the only problem is one of self-control. You want to eat a lot for the money--sure, but the food is soooo good, that it's hard to stop going back for seconds and thirds of your favorites.

There's a dessert bar plus not-found-anywhere-else ice creams like bean and green tea.

I've read other reviews of customers complaining about brusk, rude waiters, but hey, this is a buffet. All they're supposed to do anyway is clear your plates from the table when you finish. They usually wait until you leave the table for more food to do it, so there's little interaction. If they smile and really are pleasant, then it's okay to leave a tip. In a restaurant like this, 5% is nice and 10% is generous.

I've also read a couple reviews reporting insects. I never saw any, and have never been grossed out by anything in the restaurant, including the bathrooms which are kept reasonably clean.

This is a GREAT VALUE and great food, especially if you fancy fresh sashimi and sushi. This restaurant has a "sister" restaurant--Kyojin-- owned by cousins on the east side of Broward County (Makino is on the west side, on University in Sunrise).

One of the best Japanese Buffets I have been to. The Sushi was so good I had to make myself stop eating it. The kids loved the marshmellows and chocolate fountain, as well as the fish pond. The service was great and the rest of the food was excellent as well. It was way better than another local Japanese Restaurant close by (Kyojin) and cheaper as well. I definately recommend. However...don't go when it is pouring down rain. The parking lot floods and you could be walking in a foot of water.

My family and I LOVE to go to Makino. If you Love japanese food then you WILL be in HEAVEN. The food is all buffet style and all of it is delicous. You can choose from Hibachi (which you pick what they put in it and cook it right there for you), mild sampling of regualr foods such as rice, spring rolls, and other assorted foods, or Sushi and sashimi. Everything I've ever had there has been wonderful. Even my kids love to go! There is a great little fish pond for them to stare at while i fill their plates with food for them. Dont hesitate to go. You'd expect it be pricey with all the great food, but its rather affordable. I recommend this place to all my friends!

after spending a lot of time of chinese food, i decided to change it around and have a go at this japanese buffet, which i discovered when one of my friends recommended to me. i started with their seaweed salad with cucumber. then switched to their sashimi - salmon, tuna, white tuna, and so on. and next to that are many different types of sushi. their "volcano" specialty is my favorite. and tempura shrimp are great try as well. after all, the rum raisin ice cream with fruit on top finalized my great day. superb!
